Airport Safety and Security
Securing airports and restricted airspace is becoming increasingly difficult as the number of drone hobbyist pilots increase and take to the skies. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reports that drone sightings near and around airports are experiencing an increase in drone activity and UAS sightings.
Drones flying in restricted airspace can cause major disruption to flight operations and cost airlines, airports, and passengers millions of dollars in lost revenue. The potential risk of physical harm these UAS can cause to airliners and passengers is immeasurable. Aircraft engines are susceptible to drone ingestion and engine failure.
Radar technology has been used by airports, and military for more than 50-years and provides superior capabilities compared to other technologies. However, traditional airport radar and surveillance systems cannot detect small and low-flying drones and UAS. New technologies are needed to provision airports and surrounding areas to detect, alert, and provide security personnel early warning notification of imposing threats from cooperative and non-cooperative UAS.
Fortem’s TrueView R20 and Fortems SkyDome technology platform will detect careless or criminal drone activity in no-fly zones or restricted airspace. SkyDome is an airspace intrusion detection security as a service (SaaS), providing airports and critical infrastructure, intelligent awareness. Fortem’s SkyDome provides alerting, monitoring, and predictive analytics for real-time decisions.
SkyDome uses TrueView’s AI-enabled detection and classification solution to provide a complete view of local airspace. When an airspace intruder is detected, SkyDome’s Command Center can provision appropriate response options depending on threat level.
Innovative, AI-enabled, Award-winning
TrueView - The Most Compact, Long Range, Detect-and-Avoid Solution for Safe Drone Operations
Using AI-enabled algorithms, TrueView provides accurate real-time situational intelligence and awareness for safe autonomous unmanned aircraft operations. Fortem TrueView R20 weighs 1.5 lbs. and is a breakthrough technology, due to its small form factor, weight, power requirements and low cost.
Fortem’s Radar technology has been hardened over the past six years through rigorous testing with the US Department of Defense. TrueView extends this technology to detect potential air to air collisions and enables unmanned aircraft to safely navigate beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) day or night and in clouds, fog, smog and in other challenging weather conditions.
DroneHunter - Safe Mitigation in All Environments
DroneHunter™ is the world’s first UAS perimeter intrusion detection and protection solution. DroneHunter uses AI-enabled algorithms and software to provide detection, monitoring and autonomous capture of rogue drones and UAS. Once captured, DroneHunter can be instructed to tether and return or to safely discard the captured drone at a safe zone or bomb-disposal container.
DroneHunter™ notifies all authorized personnel of potential aerial threats in real-time. The command ground station provides monitoring and manual intervention override options as needed to meet situational requirements.
SkyDome - Real-time UAS Intrusion Detection Solutions
SkyDome utilizes TrueView’s AI-enabled detection and classification technology to provide a complete view of local airspace.
Fortem’s SkyDome platform of AI-enabled airspace surveillance services offers an intrusion detection solution that can detect, classify, monitor and if necessary, provide physical remediation of malicious or uncooperative drones. SkyDome is a military proven solution, able to monitor and secure day or night, and in all weather conditions.
